LOOK: This Local Brand Offers Skincare and Hair Care Products for Men

When it comes to skincare, the usual products that are readily available everywhere are mostly for women. But just because you’re a man, that doesn’t mean that you don’t deserve to have smooth, healthy, and glowing skin.

Unfortunately, men’s skincare is just not that readily accessible. This is why Tikas was started.

Tikas is a newly-established local brand that specializes in men’s skincare, haircare, and other grooming products. It was started out of a need to easily find and purchase men’s personal care products in local stores. According to their website, these products for men were just nowhere to be found.

Juls Mallari, Tikas’ founder, says, “We’re here to disrupt, to change the game for men, to challenge the status quo through our brand. The Philippines’ exaggerated machismo culture is ripe for change. We aim to focus around self-improvement and being the best man you can be. ”

World-Class Personal Care Products

Tikas is on the way to becoming the go-to local brand for men’s personal care products. They take pride in offering products that are made by men, for men. They already have quite the array of products, too.

For skincare, they have a facial cleanser, a moisturizer, a toner, and a potent serum that helps with a wide variety of skin problems such as uneven skin tone, skin redness, dull skin & acne scars. You can even get these skincare products in sets to complete your whole skincare routine.

Tikas also has haircare products such as the Unorthodox Pomade which gives a shiny finish, and the Clay Pomade which has a matte finish. Both are waterproof, making it extra easy to wash off the hair.

Even with just a few starting products, Tikas has already gotten quite a following of regular clientele thanks to the effective and high-quality products. They also arrive in sleek and elegant black packaging.

A Grooming Lounge Made for Men

Staying true to its vision of helping men improve their grooming and hygiene lifestyle, Tikas is also about to open its very own grooming lounge this June. It’s set to be a barbershop/concept store/hybrid store concept.

Mallari also says that the Tikas Grooming Lounge “aims to be a safe space for men to openly talk about the usually taboo topics surrounding common but undiscussed issues that surround men’s lifestyle—all the while getting a fresh new fade/haircut or facial.”

It’s definitely exciting to know that men have local brands such as Tikas for high-quality and world-class personal care products. And just like their founder says, it’s not just about the products, it’s also about breaking stereotypes.
